Summer Art Camps

Exploring Art Camp

In this project based class, children will use a variety of media in 2D and 3D. Your child will explore art techniques and traditions, giving them a solid base for branching out in their artistic pursuits.

Drawing Camp

Children will learn the mechanics of drawing to develop one-of-a-kind artwork. Young students will discover artistic styles, drawing tools and special techniques as they develop their unique creations.

Pottery Hand-Building Camp

Our basic hand-building with clay including pinching and coiling. Young artists explore sculpture as well as making pots. Young children really love working with the clay in this very cool camp!

Pottery Wheel Camp

Children learn the basics of throwing on the wheel, firing and glazing. These class sizes are limited and this is definitely one of our most popular classes, so sign-up early! Grades 5-8 only.
